High quality narrative features, documentaries, short films, animation, experimental and more, from across the globe.

This September, Symphony Hall will host the live screening of 'Voices of Hope'

As the London Community Gospel Choir celebrates its 40th anniversary with a homecoming concert at Hackney Empire, founders and members reflect on the choir's origin story, history and legacy. From its inception in 1980s London, against a backdrop of personal, community and national trauma, the choir struggled to become a movement for rescue, acceptance and unity. 40 years on and issues of social injustice, division and displacement are all too relevant. There remains a need for voices of hope.

This film premier will be hosted by Diane Louise Jordan and will also include Festival trailers, a Live Q&A Panel with cast and producers, and a live acoustic performances from London Community Gospel Choir.
